How to Get into LCD Soundsystem 1 Week Before Their New Album Comes Out?

I don’t know, I haven’t done it, but if you want a quick crash course do the following:

  1. Listen to the “Essentials” playlist on Apple Music or the “This Is:” playlist on Spotify.
  2. Listen to Losing My Edge on repeat for about 10-15 songs.
  3. Once your introduction to them is done, watch this short documentary on Vimeo:
  4. Then, listen to their farewell live album The Long Goodbye
  5. Pay attention to the lyrics in the songs. They are great.
  6. Start to feel sad about never having seen them live. Watch Shut Up and Play the Hits, which is a recording of their farewell show/documentary about James Murphy’s decision to end the band. It’s $4.99 on Vimeo and worth every penny:
  7. Listen to the first three songs of American Dream, which comes out on September 1!
